Essex firm sponsors the next generation of footballers

Stanway Rovers Girls Infernos team at well-established Stanway Rovers Youth Football Club is celebrating following a sponsorship boost from Birkett Long Independent Financial Advisers (IFA).

Stanway Rovers Youth Football Club is a development-based, community club that offers football for all ages in a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Thanks to Birkett Long IFA, the club has new match kits and waterproof jackets.

Ross Turver, Vice Chairman for girl’s football said: “Stanway Rovers Girls Football started in 2017 and has grown considerably to over 80 girls from age 5-14 with over ten coaches. As friendships have formed, so have teams, and we now compete in the Essex County Girls Football League in 3 different age groups with 5 different teams. Our newest U9 team, Stanway Rovers Girls Infernos, have just started their first matches. 

“As a part of the league it is crucial that the girls have the backing of a sponsor. In doing so, the girls gain a sense of achievement in wearing a league kit and feel confident to step out onto the pitch, no matter the weather. By having a sponsor such as Birkett Long IFA, they also gain a sense of pride knowing they are being supported by such a well-known and respected firm.

“We offer our continued thanks to our sponsors as our club continues to grow, and look forward to building our relationship with Birkett Long into the future.” 

Nicola Ward, Financial Planning Manager said: “I’m delighted that Birkett Long IFA is able to sponsor Stanway Rovers Girls Inferno football team, it’s excellent to be involved with a team that is so keen to develop the next generation of footballers. It’s important that local businesses support each other, and this was a great opportunity to get involved with a competitive team on our doorstep.”
